Sunday, January 23, 1910 (continued)
We have found fragments of an alabaster lion's paw (sphinx?) [margin note in pencil] (in northwest quarter) [end margin note] and of an alabaster relief. The great question now is "Where is the rest of the relief and the sphinx (?) and the stela?" We shall have to face the clearing of the great fore court to answer this.
